What is the meaning of life

Slayer_
I know Dr Who said it was to keep meat fresh, but that can't be true, so what is the real meaning?

It can be related to only one other state. I shouldn't need to tell you what that is. If, rather, you go with inherence, you go in circles.

The term "meaning of life" is inseparable from our philosophical and religious beliefs of existence, consciousness, and happiness, and touches on many other issues, such as symbolic meaning, value, purpose, ethics, good and evil, free will, conceptions of God, the existence of God, the soul, and the afterlife.

A lot of it hinges on the concept of ontology, meaning that what we perceive as reality may or may not be real. (See the film 'The Matrix')

It depends, too, on whether an individual believes we are merely living creatures, in which case the meaning of life is to survive long enough to produce more of the same.

The more enlightened individual may have loftier goals, such as to believe that one's purpose is to make the world a better place, to bring joy to others, or to reduce suffering in the world.

Personally, give me an unlimited supply of cold beer, a fast computer, and enough money so I don't have to do interior painting, and I'm all set. :)

some people question whether the world is too mucked up to bring new defenseless meatbags into it, others think it's their duty to breed an army of cyber-warriors, and others seem to have taken that 'be fruitful and multiply' advice a little too seriously. The gene pool has both deep and shallow ends, the filtration system is broken, and it needs muuuuch more chlorine.
